Only then will they get a clear understanding of the impact we are having on our community and how best to mitigate it and help improve the livelihood of our hosts....the days of divorcing engineers and mining specialists from community work are over...this is a new era...a new era for Wanbao and for mining as a whole...we must listen to our communities..." Geng Yi, General Manager Myanmar Wanbao.


This week, a Wanbao team made of mining, mechanical and electrical engineers, as well as our community relations team members continued the community consultation programme we started last July 2013. The team has been given specialised training in community consultations over several months of workshops which sharpened their skills in responding to community questions and concerns. The team was led by Mr. Cao Desheng, head of Public relations at Wanbao and was observed by China-i, a British consultancy specialising in development and stakeholder risk management.
